    The Current's 893 Essential Albums

    The Current, a MN radio station, has been listing off the 893 most essential albums voted on by the listeners. It has been really fun listening this past few days as they count down, especially since it ranges all genres.

    Here is a link to the list: http://www.thecurrent.org/feature/20...sential-albums

    They are in the 200's right now I believe.

    Voters submitted their top 10 albums to make the list.

    Anyone else been listening?

    Re: The Current's 893 Essential Albums

    My question is how they did the rankings because for sure they had to have had some with the same amount of votes.

    Sweet, thanks for the link. I ended up having to download the app to make it work on my Android.

    I wondered the same thing.. There had to been a lot of ties in the 800's with only a few votes.

    Re: The Current's 893 Essential Albums

    Neighbor posted his top 5 on Facebook. I have 2 of his albums so figure if I crank open the windows and crank up the volume and spin the vinyl on those he can't complain. Right?


    I was dreamin' when I wrote this, forgive me if it goes astray.

    Re: The Current's 893 Essential Albums

    I think I've owned 75% of the albums in the 200's in my life.


    In 1984, I was hospitalized for approaching perfection.

    Way too much modest mouse, spoon, ani difranco and other crap to be considered a legit list.

    My guess is the classics will be more represented in the Top 200, which they haven't even shown yet.

    Re: The Current's 893 Essential Albums

    Their Top 100 had better be ******* STUNNING based off of some of those they put in 800-893! Holy ****! Several of those should have been in the top 200 if not the top 100...


    It is the mark of an educated mind to be able to entertain a thought without accepting it.

    Remember, you're unique. Just like everyone else.

    Looked and it was his Top 10. Of those I only had Born to Run and Joan Armatrading Show Some Emotion.

    I thought I owned the only copy of Show Some Emotion. :)
